The longitudinal orientation of the cracks is consistent with the fact that the maximum stress is the hoop stress. The cracks start generally from a zone where casting porosity is above average (Fig. 15). These zones are usually associated with longitudinal bands of bore roughness already present in the tube in the as-received condition. The number of longitudinal bands may vary from one to six and, when there is more than one, they are evenly spaced. It is not uncommon to see tubes 52 B. ESTRUCH AND C.
